Historical Architecture
Castle
Cici1979Cici1979The architectural style of the palace is twofold: the palace is mainly Gothic, but the various decorations related to King Matthias reflect the Renaissance style of the Italian court artists. The upper castle was built in the middle of the 13th century to defend against Tatar invasions, and the lower castle was built around the same time, the well-known Sauron Minaret. A bird’s eye view of the Danube Bay from the ruins of the palace on the Castle Hill is picturesque. From here, you can also see the peaks of Berne on the other side of the Danube and the medieval houses in Nagymalos.

Churches and Cathedrals
yangtingkunyangtingkunEsztergom Basilica is Hungarian, translated into Chinese is Esztergom Basilica. This church is not simple. Although it is located in the small town of Esztergom, it is the largest church in Hungary, the second largest in Europe, and the fourth largest in the world. The king of Hungary was crowned here. The huge dome of the church can be climbed up to overlook the Danube.

City Park
馋嘴囡GOGO吃遍世界馋嘴囡GOGO吃遍世界As soon as we entered the park, Hungarians dressed in local national costumes brought home-brewed wine, fruit wine and desserts to entertain everyone. Before watching the equestrian show, you will cruise down the entire estate in a carriage! This carriage is different from the ones we used to ride. It's so retro and nostalgic. It's a tin carriage, which can hold about 10 people in a stack! After that, we saw the purest traditional European equestrian show. The horseman drove five to seven horses across two horses to enter the arena, sitting on a horse without a saddle, performing archery, and waving a long whip to drive the horses to sit and lie down. , Lying and other difficult movements. The last supper was enjoyed in the restaurant inside the manor. Unique restaurant, in the music of gypsies (of course this is a tip), slurping Hungarian dishes (three-course dinner) and drinking Hungarian wine. The appetizer is quaint soup! The cauldron is served directly, we are a table of four, so the amount is huge! The appetizer is also the foie gras salad. The foie gras here is very dry and hard, like pork liver, which is incomparable to lunch! The wine is free to drink on the table! The main dish is the meat in front of us, which scared us to death. There are fried chicken, roasted duck legs, trotters and so on. There are side dishes on the left and right, sour and spicy, which can relieve greasy! It's dead!

Palace
西溪老翁西溪老翁Gedler Palace Hungary is Sissi’s favorite place in her life, so Sissi has been loved by the Hungarian people throughout her life. There is no doubt that Sissi is respected and admired in Hungary. The places where Sissi has been involved are in Hungary. "SiSi" will be marked on the tourist map. Gödöllö’s Palace, Grasalković Palace, is also directly called "Sissi Castle". It was built in the 18th century and was once the manor of the Hungarian nobles. After the establishment of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Hungarian nobles redecorated the manor castle to Habsburg King Joseph and Queen Elizabeth (Princess Sissi), and it has been used as the residence of the Austrian king when he visited Hungary. In the palace, there are still many supplies of Princess Sissi and many precious portrait oil paintings. Since photography is not allowed indoors, (I really don't like this kind of small family) I can only take some pictures at the gate and the back garden. Tickets for the castle are HUF 2,600.
